Please support the mini-org my friend and I founded which we proudly call as the Give Love on Christmas Day Project. We help less fortunate groups every Christmas season. We spread and give love, the greatest gift of all, to those who thirst for care and affection. After all, this is the real meaning of life... at least for us.

Right now I am happily struggling to make my life extraordinary. Baby steps and soon I'll get there.

I have no problems with being single or being in a relationship but I have noticed that most people nowadays perceive being single as something peculiar. Being single is not a disease that needs constant check-ups or treatments. It doesn’t mean that there’s something wrong about you. So chill, my friend. Chill. Stop interrogating your friends why they’re still single like it’s an illegal act or something.

We are inviting you to join our outreach program with the kids of St. Maria de Mattias Center-Orphanage in Marikina Heights, Marikina City on December 8, 2013 from 1pm-5pm! All our previous volunteers are invited! New ones are very much welcome to join and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas with us!
St. Maria de Mattias Center-Orphanage currently shelters 14 indigent and abandoned girls aged 6-16y/o. It was founded by the Adorers of the Blood of Christ Sisters in the year 2001. From then on, they’ve been helping neglected girls by welcoming them into the orphanage, building their character and helping them go to school.
All kinds of donations are very much appreciated but they are in need of things which are easily consumed such as toiletries and school supplies as specified by Sister Flor, the very kind and accommodating nun we ambushed this afternoon during our visit! We are very much thankful to her for agreeing to our proposal on such very short notice!
JOIN US AS WE GIVE LOVE AND INSPIRE THE KIDS OF ST. MARIA DE MATTIAS CENTER-ORPHANAGE ON DECEMBER 8, 2013! We’ll be posting more details soon so please keep posted!
Feel free to blog and tweet about us, share this event on Facebook and invite your friends! Let us build bridges from those who are willing to help to those who are in need of any kind of help! GIVE AND INSPIRE! SPREAD THIS CAUSE!

If I win the lottery

I’d go to Med school, in a heartbeat. 

I chose not to pursue my dream of being a doctor because I want to earn money for my family asap. My parents are not getting any younger. They’ve sacrificed a lot for me and they’ve given me everything I needed. Now, it’s payback time! I can never give back if I went to med school. Not even after I graduate! I’d have to undergo residency then fellowship and a loooooot of other trainings before I can be on my own. I’m not even sure if my parents would be around by that time. So I chose to leave that path behind and take another road. But if I win the lottery, so help me God, I’d pursue med. Not only will I have money during and after med, my family can also get everything they desire! PS. My best friend and I will study med together as well. If she wins, she’ll pay for everything I need and vice versa! Lol.

I’d make my small charity group official! 

Do you know that you need a million in order to list and make a foundation official? Ironic, right?! If I win, I’d help more less fortunate groups and create more foundations too!

I’d travel the world.

Before I go to med school of course. Lol. I’d travel with my family and friends!

I’d build my dream home.

The one with a movie room, swimming pool, walk in closets for me and Ma, big kitchen and a big garden. Oh the one with a swing too!

I’d buy my brother everything he wants.

Gadgets, cars and everything! As long as he’ll get good grades and stay out of trouble, he’ll get what he’s been wanting. Of course I’d buy everything my parents want as well!

I’d start a business. 

Maybe I’d have that cafe I’ve always wanted or build condominiums or town houses! 

I’d buy everything I want.

My earthly desires are just simple… I want a car, gadgets, clothes, bags and shoes. Did I mention simple?

I’d put everything else left in the bank.

My mom would surely put more than half in the bank then just let the interest grow and grow! Then I can do everything else written above again.

That is if I win the lottery… Anyone can dream right? But if not I’d work hard to give my family everything they want, then myself next. ;)

Lord, please let me win the lottery so I can go to med school and give everything my fam want/need. =))

CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE OR CHANGE THE LATITUDE

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves. —VIKTOR FRANKL

Sometimes you wake up knowing what could happen and not knowing what to do. Or not wanting to face anything at all. There are times when you don’t even know what could happen yet you just want to curl up back to bed, sleep and face whatever it is bothering you the next day. In reality, unless you’re God, nobody knows anything about the future. And even if you sleep, you’ll still wake up and eventually face everything. You can’t run away forever. Maybe you’re afraid, maybe you’re tired or maybe you just don’t want the role you’re playing as of the moment. Well, either you change your situation or you change yourself. At least that’s what Viktor Frankl said and it all makes perfect sense. Change your attitude or change latitude.

Well, if you are unhappy on where you are then go and do it right now. Don’t waste more time being hard on yourself. Be brave and let go. Feel blessed to have the opportunity because not everyone has the choice to leave. Grab it! Keep on praying and one day you’ll be at the right place, at the right time, surrounded by the right people.

Now if you can’t say bye-bye just like that to where you are now then maybe you can say bye-bye to your old self..I meant the not-so-helpful-side of yourself. The person inside of you who’s easily afraid..or that person who’s always negative. My best friend gave me an advice to only invite positive, happy thoughts when faced with you’re least favorite situations in life. Your mind does play a significant role in dealing with everyday’s issues. If you want to be happy, then think happy thoughts. Associating happy thoughts, next to praying, is one of the best tricks you can do to live a positive life. If you’re unhappy with a job and you can’t resign now then always think that your job shouldn’t take most of the space in your heart. Remember to always look out on the more relevant aspects of your life - your family and friends. They matter most. Your job, or whatever it is bothering you right now, is just temporary. Your loved ones will stay with you forever.

Change is one thing nobody can change. Well, that was a funny statement! Ironic, it is. But seriously, if you cannot change where you are, change who you are. Embrace change. Once you accept it, ready yourself to a greater, happier life!
